Eurospan Sales, Marketing and Distribution for Academic and Professional Publishers

University Presses

University Press of Florida testimonial

Eurospan’s University Presses marketing division comprises university presses from the USA and Canada, Africa, Asia and Australasia. Taken together these publish in excess of 2,000 new book titles each year. Amongst the many monographs and specialist scholarly works can be found a strong selection of general interest “trade” titles as well as titles with a regional focus specific to each Press’s respective state or region. Core subjects range from literary studies and poetry to cultural studies, sociology, philosophy, politics, music and performing arts.

By association with Eurospan, each press is able to transfer the following costs:


  • Costs associated with developing an annual marketing strategy
  • New Title Announcements (NTAs) on all key titles
  • Production of publisher-branded leaflets and catalogues
  • All mail costs (postage/envelopes/enclosing)
  • Monthly e-alerts by subject and by title
  • Branded advertising as appropriate
  • Review copy dispatches, in particular to the TLS and London Review of Books
  • Academic conference displays
  • New and best seller title listings in Eurospan University Press multi-Press fine subject catalogues


  • Key account management (wholesalers, library suppliers and bookstores)
  • Bookstore representation
  • All commission/fees
  • Presentation of new titles to regional sales representatives seasonally
  • Participation in the Amazon Advantage programme (
  • Inspection copy programme for titles with text potential
  • Participation at key Book Fairs (e.g. Tehran Book Fair)
  • Registration of all titles within the Nielson Bookdata and PubEasy bibliographic systems
  • Inclusion of all active titles in Eurospan’s online bookstore


  • Sea and air freight into the UK
  • Stock insurance and all disbursements
  • Warehousing, inventory control and maintenance
  • Costs associated with the establishment of local pricing and bookseller account set up (discounts, credit period, etc)
  • Order processing and customer services
  • Postage and packing on customer orders
  • Cost of bookseller/wholesaler discount
  • Sales reporting by title and, if required, by region/customer
  • Credit management and control/cash collection

In addition, each Press is assigned a dedicated University Press Marketing Manager working within Eurospan’s Academic & Professional publisher group. Regular communication on product and strategy is encouraged and feedback on sales and marketing activities undertaken is regularly provided. For North American presses there is also the opportunity to meet with a Eurospan representative at the American Association of University Presses (AAUP) annual convention.

All of the above functions, to include many more of lesser significance that are not mentioned here, are paid for by Eurospan, not the university press. There are no additional fees and no hidden charges.
